Can AI revolutionise the three Rs?

House of Representatives < 1 mins read

The House of Representatives Standing Committee on Employment, Education and Training has launched an inquiry into the use of generative artificial intelligence in the Australian education system.

Chair of the Committee, Lisa Chesters MP, noted that ‘artificial technologies are increasingly available in education settings, presenting both opportunities and challenges. This inquiry will examine the ways in which these technologies may impact education outcomes for students in the Australian education system.’

‘We will have a particular focus on the emergence of generative AI technologies, and the benefits and the risks they may hold for the Australian education system, now and into the future,’ Ms Chesters said.

‘The Committee encourages submissions from stakeholders in this field, including industry experts, researchers, educators and others interested in the issue.’

More information on the inquiry, including the full terms of reference and details on making a submission, can be found on the Committee website.
